Tasting notes


Dense tarry nose, with a strong savoury character that is close to gamey but doesn't obsucre the black fruits. Quite rich, supple and rounded. Good concentration of fruit backed by firm tannic frame. Warm, spicy, fragrant fruit still with youthful vitality. Alc: 13%. Drink 2012-2019. 17.75pts/20 (92pts/100)
